comment Disabling SSLv3 but still supporting SSLv2Hello in Apache
Yes, that appears to be, what Apache developers are considering. See the [thread][1] I started there... [1]mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/httpd-dev/201410.mbox/…

comment Disabling SSLv3 but still supporting SSLv2Hello in Apache
I can confirm, that Chris' patch helps -- curl (and libcurl-using programs such as git) can now talk to our server again, despite SSLv3 having been disabled -- without sslscan flagging any vulnerabilities. But the patch seems somewhat invasive and I'd like to ask Chris to submit it to Apache project for review ASAP. I'll file a ticket myself, if Chris does not :-) Thank you very much, Chris!

comment Why did git stop working after server disabled SSLv3?
That what I thought until I tested the same git against github -- which offers the exact same protocol-collection -- and found, that that worked...

comment How to monitor GlusterFS clients?
What will populate the SNMP information? I'm not asking for monitoring framework -- we have one already. I'm wondering, what to look for -- not how. Information from logs? Anything in particular I should look for? Thanks!

comment How to best backup AWS-hosted systems?
No, I do not need much replication of the backups. What I do need is what I listed in my question -- the four items. Thanks!

comment How to best backup AWS-hosted systems?
The backups shall end up stored on S3, correct. But which tool would create them -- "ec2 create-snapshot" or something else -- is my question...

Is your strategy capable of meeting the requirements I listed? We aren't using Windows here, but any plan for backing up MySQL databases may be of interest.

comment Simple S3 -> Glacier Backup
Yes, it would seem, the minimum time charged for Glacier storage is 3 months. Considering that nominally Glacier costs about ⅓ of S3, if you fully replace the backups more often than once a month, using Glacier makes no sense. It is more expensive and you have to wait hours to get your backups in case you ever need them.

Yes, EEAA, that is, what we want. Thank you.

comment How to place additional access-restrictions on a subdirectory in Apache?
For one, Vasili, the link you gave is for Apache-2.2, where auth mechanisms are quite different from 2.4. And then, of course, I've already read the 2.4 page on the subject -- to no avail. It is too basic and does not cover my case.

comment How to block ALL communications with an IP-address using iptables?
Using iptables -I PREROUTING -s $IP -j DROP blocks the $IP from neither the router itself nor from LAN. Same when I use "raw" instead of "PREROUTING".

comment How to block ALL communications with an IP-address using iptables?
That is, what I'm doing right now -- so as to only ssh into the router once. But no, it does not count, in my opinion... And, ideally, I'd like a single rule -- not just a single command (that creates multiple rules) -- because I'm a little concerned for the router-memory. I don't want these rules to occupy all the RAM after a few weeks.

comment What is the Mean Time to Failure (MTTF) of a RAID5?
Mfinni, yes, there are corelated failures, but having a hot spare will not help you against those much either: you are likely to have not just two, but several (or even all) drives fail to the same environmental problem, that killed the first one...

comment What is the Mean Time to Failure (MTTF) of a RAID5?
Thanks, David. Could you reword the answer to calculate the MTTF, though? And, preferably, use the variables (N, r, and T) so I can pick your answer...

comment What is the Mean Time to Failure (MTTF) of a RAID5?
David, I know very well about point 2 -- if you read my question carefully, a second drive failing during the recovery is how I define the death of the entire array. But I'm asking about a formula (or, at least, a number). If the rebuild component of the recovery time r is, indeed, as big as 30 hours, then using hot spares makes even less sense -- an operator can put in a cold spare in 4-6 hours tops (and usually much faster).
